Rob Horne: sidelined by hamstring injury

Sky Bet

Australia centre Rob Horne has withdrawn from the Wallabies team to face Wales at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday due to a hamstring injury.

Horne failed to come through a training session at the Ospreys' training base in Swansea and his place in the starting line-up will be taken by Queensland Reds centre Anthony Fainga'a.

Fainga'a's spot among the replacements has been taken by Melbourne Rebels scrum-half Nick Phipps.

An ARU press release read: "A tight hamstring has forced NSW Waratahs centre Rob Horne to withdraw from Saturday's James Bevan Trophy Test match at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff."
